A new regulation concerning the bed tax in Cologne applies from 1 October 2010. In the future, 5 percent must be pitched on the gross value of the accommodation. On this charge is 7 percent added value added tax. Under the beautiful name of art & culture tax the Oberfinanzdirektion Rheinland decided to levy a surcharge on the gross price plus value added tax in the future. If this provision in the future is not observed, the hotelier with VAT claims could be surprised. How is this in practice? For example, for EUR 79 room rate, which is a surcharge of EUR 3.95 + EUR 0.28 VAT. That would be a gross 5.35% premium to the price of logistics. Would you every time manually calculate this extra with the calculator must, then it would be a huge effort for staff time. A related site: Dermot McCormack mentions similar findings.
